The springs alone will cost around $220-$250 for the fronts and rears. It only takes around 2-3 hrs to change them. Seeing your only going lows you wont need to replace shocks or camber kit. Im sure someone on here could assist you. Im in Mulgrave and could do it for you. But what brand of springs are you after? I went Dobinson after trying Kings, im very pleased with Dobinsons as the kings were too harsh.

he'll probably need a camber kit eventually, i lowered mine using tickford springs and the camber still ended up being out.

yeah changing springs is easy if you've got the room and compressors, I've heard good things about Dobinsons, Kings suck IMO.

Heres a thread i did on Dobinson springs a few months ago.

http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=36068

And heres the site for Dobinson Springs

http://www.dobinsonsprings.com/site/

A shim type camber/castor kit will set you back around $120 a pair and is easy to install, then after just have the wheel alignment done.

Pedders are s**t. they just paint other products red then charge you a fortune for it.

If its the inner on both sides its more likely to be toe out rather than camber/castor. The toe does change with height, even 1mm of toe out can scrub tyres.
